As a freelancer, Brandon is a detail-minded, deadline-driven, creator of original content. He prides himself on versatility as a writer, editor, and course developer; skills all honed throughout a decade of Higher Education experience. Moreover, he is a client-centered communication professional that strives to understand your business needs.

He completed his undergraduate degree at Temple University, where he received a B.A. in English Literature. Though his studies focused on the works of everyone from Shakespeare to Pirandello to the entire spectrum of modernist writers, he did concentrate on writing; producing two plays and a plethora of poems and stories. During his time at Temple, he also studied for a year at the campus in Rome, Italy. His graduate studies focused on the field of Communication, where he graduated from Drexel University with an M.S. in the spring of 2010. At Drexel he refined his humanist background in literature with the necessary social science theory of communication, blending art and science in a way envisioned by the great Enlightenment thinkers.

His resume is extensive when it comes to the field of Higher Education, where both academic and administrative positions allowed him multitudinous opportunities to showcase his writing skills. He has developed marketing campaigns, email campaigns for customer relationship management (CRM) systems, web copy, and social media campaigns. Furthermore, as an accomplished course designer, he is capable of producing entire curricula or single presentations following recognized standards of the medium, including Quality Matters.

As a freelance writer, editor, course designer, and social media expert, Brandon understands that writing is your business.
